Brazilian talents Leandro Higo and John Macapa are not going anywhere.

Undefeated under the Bellator banner in 2019, “Pitbull” and “Macapa” signed new exclusive, multi-fight deals with the North-American company, promotion officials told MMA Fighting.

Bellator has yet to book their next bouts.

Higo (19-5) recently bounced back from losses to Aaron Pico and Darrion Caldwell with a second-round guillotine choke victory over Shawn Bunch in September. The former bantamweight title contender also holds a Bellator win over Joe Taimanglo.

Teixeira (23-4-2) is coming off consecutive victories over Kevin Croom and Ashleigh Grimshaw in the circular cage this year, returning to the winning column after losing three straight against Daniel Weichel, Pat Curran and A.J. McKee. The featherweight talent currently holds a 7-3 Bellator record.
